This is the first sentence I’ve ever dictated to a blog. I’m using my new laptop with Windows Vista Ultimate edition. Learning to dictate a blog entry is surprisingly easy. It’s worth taking the simple and quick tutorial to help you learn the basic commands. But I have to admit it all feels very weird. The biggest problem I expect to encounter is that I am going to look pretty stupid doing this in the office. I also imagine that I’ll get a sore throat before long. I won’t pretend that I dictated this perfectly first time. I made a few mistakes that were easy to correct and I’ve not had to use my mouse or keyboard. Anyway, give it a try, it’s really simple and very accurate. To get started type speech recognition into the search bar under the Start button. (Blimey, I even managed some formatting there and brackets, or parentheses as they’re known, here!) This is so good it’s starting to freak me out!
